Bing Crosby - It Must Be True - 1930 and 1931




In 1930 when these recordings were made, the Gus Arnheim Orchestra, featured at the Cocoanut Grove in Hollywood, was the rage of the radio and the West Coast. Ironically Arnheim's vocalist, Bing Crosby, would within months of these recording sessions soar to incomprehensible fame as the premier vocalist of his generation. Yet at this time Bing Crosby was just a hot vocalist who had recently left the Paul Whiteman Orchestra and was becoming a soloist with Gus Arnheim. He was not a headliner yet. Enjoy these recordings from the original 78 RPM performances. Doc Murph

Many thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to collect these particular 78 RPM recordings, restore them, and upload them on the Archive for enjoyment. This music does not go away easily.
(I have uploaded a better restoration of "Just A Gigalo" that gets some nasty clicks out of the way.)
